PRAY WITHOUT CEASING
Please join your church in praying for the following requests for the life and mission of the church:
 
+ Please pray for our students going through the Confirmation process, that the Lord would help them to grow in the knowledge and love of him, and that they would gain a vision for walking with him daily.

+ Pray for our Prayer Ministry, that the Lord would work powerfully to heal and set people free as they come for prayer on Sundays during Communion, on Wednesdays for Abiding Prayer, for Healing Prayer appointments at the church and through the prayers of the Intercessory Prayer Team.

+ Pray for our country's government leaders, that they would enact policy that protects and cares for all people made in God's image--for the unborn, for immigrants, the poor, orphans, widows and the elderly.  "So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them." {Gen 1:27}
